- Denison Community School District, IA
Senior: When I say that I like my high school I truly mean it. I have some great teachers who truly care about me and check up on me. I am blessed to have teachers who I have formed a great relationship with while in high school. The number one reason why I love my school is because I feel safe here. I never wake up in the morning scared to go to school. I feel accepted and welcomed here and that is one thing many kids can't say about their school. On days when I don’t feel like going to school it is more because of the continuous routine that gets to be a little repetitive. Not because I am uncomfortable or terrified of school. One thing that I would change about my school is how lunch is organized. I wish there was more lunch options. If not, it would be nice if they allowed us to have off campus lunch like they used to do a long time ago. This way most students would eat lunch and have a little break to unwind from the long stressful classes.

Roanoke Catholic School
- Private School
- Roanoke, VA
- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.

Boyer Valley Middle/High School
- Boyer Valley Community School District, IA
Alum: At Boyer Valley High School, I loved that the classes were small because you get more interaction with other students and teachers. You develop a relationship with everyone which overall improved student interaction and achievement. Every student also had the opportunity to be involved in extracurricular activities. No matter what, you had the chance to participate which I feel makes a huge impact on the student's life because they feel like they are noticed which can go a long way in that specific age levels. It was overall a great experience.

Ikm-Manning High School
- IKM Manning Community School District, IA
High School Senior: I've moved 14 times. I got into the routine of finding the people I knew that I'd get along with, and each school fell into the same category. They were all very cliquish, with their athletics, and artsy people, but then I started attending IKM-Manning High School. This school has been such a great experience, most students appreciate everyone's input, and everyone tries to get along. There is respect in most classrooms, and the ones with out is because the teacher is to much of a "friend". This school changed my thoughts about high school, it doesn't have your usual groups of people. Athletes, are in drama; drama kids are athletic, everyone gets along. It's refreshing.
